When anglers arrive at Lake Darling on Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge this spring, they?ll find some new accommodations waiting for them. The popular fishing spot in north-central North Dakota sports an updated landing area that includes a new concrete boat ramp and two jetties that function as breakwaters and fishing piers. The $87,000 project should make boat launching much easier, according to officials, who also hope to replace a concrete-plank ramp at another launch site on the 9,000-acre lake. The Refuge counted nearly 63,000 visits last year, including 53,000 by anglers.
